CWI is counting down to its 75th anniversary and kindly requests you to save the date: on 11 February 2021 we will celebrate our jubilee with a special online event.

Founded in 1946 as Mathematisch Centrum, our institute has been the birthplace of numerous scientific breakthroughs, and a breeding ground for talented researchers. During our online event, we will look back on our most remarkable scientific achievements.

But above all, we will look into the future with scientific breakout sessions: what do our scientists see when they look ahead to the future of, for example, artificial intelligence or quantum computing? How do we deal with data in the future? And to what level of security can you make computers safe?

One of the programme's highlights is the farewell speech by our former director Jos Baeten. During his speech, he will reflect on his personal experiences with computers and computing research.

More details about the programme will become available soon and an official invitation and registration follows in the new year. For now, please reserve 11 February 2021 in your calendar so you can join us for our 75th birthday celebrations.

We are trying to get in contact with as many CWI alumni as possible. In case you know of any alumni (scientific and/or support staff) who should take part in the celebrations too, please feel free to forward the above information.
Alumni who would like to stay updated and receive invites to CWI events, should inform Daniëlle Kollerie (kollerie@cwi.nl) on what email address they can be contacted.

Preliminary program will follow asap.
